Help!

I just installed ACT 2010 and am completely confused!  I thought I was in the database but it says DEMO and in the demo it has over 200 names which are not names I entered.  This is a NEW copy so not sure what that is all about and when I go to file to start a NEW database it says the record I'm trying to creat is a duplicate.

 

Can anyone help me out-please Smiley Happy

Re: Help!

The ACT demo database is there to give you a place to play around.  Just make a new database. The duplicate contact message is easy to get around. Act is just telling you that the contact you created is a duplicate based upon the criteria set in tools preferences.  ACT is asking if you want to allow this. In the case, the answer yes would be just fine. This will make the message go away so you can create your database
